1:40 am
>> just an hour ago this, police moving into start break up what has become the bay area's newest occupy protest on the berkeley campus. >> unlike in oakland or san francisco, berkeley is not putting up with what it says are unlawful gatherings and illegal camping. we are in the middle of it. >> reporter: we are here at the campus of uc berkeley at a quickly changing situation. you see several dozen officers standing with -- several thousand students out here. the tone and mood is tense at times and it's celebrating at times. about five minutes ago the officers retreated a bit and let the students take back their steps. we have a live picture here and so the crowd just went wild. they started chanting, however if you can see from the picture that the officers still have the grassy area surrounded here.
1:41 am
they aren't getting anyone get to close to the area where they were trying to clear out the tents earlier before. we have dramatic pictures taken about 9:30 this evening. . >> reporter: that was a scene about an hour and a half ago. an officer started this by coming up with a bull horn saying they are unlawful and have illegally set up tents. the students rallied, they locked arms, they were seven to ten people deep but the officers moved in with the riot gear, jacking people in the stomach, dragging them down, putting them in cuffs and taking them away and then they formed a wedge and made a bee line for the tents and that has been the focus of the evening. they took them all down. they were filled with supplies, drinks, food, took them away and pushed the crowd back and basically now they are at a standoff. this started about noon today.
1:42 am
they were protesting education cuts and tuition fee hikes here at berkeley. so you can see they are still several thousand people strong. the officers are basically facing off with them, it's gotten a little more relaxed in the past hour but everybody is wondering what's next right now. tomorrow massive protests, uc system wide, everybody will do everything around noon or so. they will be back here at the plaza and will march from here to the nearest b of a which is down the street. so the first day of occupy cal here lasted about nine and a half hours, who knows what will happen tomorrow. >> thank you very much. we will go to robert now with details on plans to bust up occ, py oakland. it's apparently not a matter of if but when. >> reporter: right. sources saying tonight that it
1:43 am
is imminent that a second raid of the plaza and the nearly 200 tents here is expected to go. nobody is saying time or date or at least they are keeping it close to their vest but already the city has shut off the power here at the plaza shutting off the lights and the water fountains that surround this plaza and as you are about to see, never have city officials chanted occupy oakland must go, that is never until tonight. >> so, so -- >> reporter: five city councilmembers announced the protest is killing business and must go but the group grounds any attempt at free speech. >> these are individuals who
1:44 am
are not from oakland. they do not care about oakland. they have not been -- [inaudible]. >> we are shouting them down because we don't want them to bring back thousands of police officers into our streets. >> reporter: sources say plans for a second raid are already underway. keith jordon according to sources has already reached out to the alameda county sheriff. making a request for a substantial number of officers. a number so large the request has now extended to neighboring counties say sources. he is acting now because the law requires five-days notice for mutual aid. the councilmembers say in the last 48 hours there have been two tent fires and a knife attack and they won't wait for a mayor they accuse of flip- flopping. >> the mayor doesn't take
1:45 am
their responsibility serious, we do. >> they started to mislead us, started to -- people got upset and they started to speak out. >> reporter: supporters fear the protesters have reached a crisis level so. >> we need to have the governor, we need to have pete starks and we need them to come participate. >> reporter: now back out live. a vigil has just started here in the plaza in support of the protesters but i can tell you leaders firmly divided. the mayor was not invited to join the councilmembers press conference so she put out her own press statement and in a surprising turn is no longer asking for negotiations with the protesters. she is now calling for their immediate eviction from this plaza expect a press conference
1:46 am
from the mayor tomorrow. reporting live from oakland. >> more trouble across the country at another university. hundreds of students are rioting tonight. they flooded streets of downtown state college. the home of penn state university, shaking lamp posts, they were shouting we want joe, we want joe in support of the football coach. a few hours ago penn state made it official. they fired the university president and paterno. drew reports on the end of a legendary 45 year career but not the end of the child sex abuse scandal. >> reporter: the crowd waiting for news from the board gasped when the announcement was made. >> joe paterno is no longer the football coach effective immediately. >> reporter: the university president was also told to step
1:47 am
down as the head of the board promised to win back the public's trust. >> the outrage we feel is nothing compared to the physical and mental suffering that allegedly happened. >> reporter: earlier in the day the coach said he was retiring at the end of the season. in a statement the 84-year-old said it's one of the great sorrows of my life, with the benefit of looking back i wish i had done more. he and the president's demise come in the wake of the case against jerry sandusky charged molesting eight boys over 15 years. at least one allegedly happened on the university campus. now there is a federal investigation, the united states department of education is be looing in to whether penn state failed to report incidents of sexual abuse on campus. law requires colleges and universities to report the number of crimes on campus and provide warnings if safety is threatened. pennsylvania's governor is a member of the board.

1:49 am
trouble answering. >> reporter: eight presidential candidates took the debate stage at oakland university in michigan. the harassment allegations about cain were addressed early on. >> the american people deserve better than someone being tried in the court of public opinion, based on unfounded accusations. >> are you convinced by what he has said? >> he is a person to respond to these questions, he just did. >> reporter: the candidate was eager to leave that issue behind and focus on the economy. they targeted the president not each other. >> you want to get america's economy going we know how to, it's the opposite of what the president is doing. >> the president's plan for job creation has absolutely nothing to do with the true people who know how to create jobs. >> this administration has done nothing but put stuff in the caboos section and its it is novembering the economy. >> reporter: it was another
1:50 am
opportunity for rick perry to improve. >> i would do away with the education -- the -- i commerce and let's see, i can't, the third one i can't. sorry. oops. that was a department of energy i was reaching for a while ago. >> reporter: there are less than two months officer the first cauceses leaving them little time to separate from the pack and win over voters. >> we won't have official results for at least a few days but that doesn't matter to ed lee. he has already declared victory in the san francisco mayor's race. we show you why. >> reporter: it turns out after 11 elimination rounds it's appointed mayor ed lee who takes the lead. he got 21% more votes over the second place contender. the count is considered preliminary but it's not
1:51 am
stopping him from claiming victory. ed lee is not hiding his excitement nor could he ignore his place in history. >> the numbers fairly accurate right now and i'm confident that we can use the word victory right now which obviously sounds very good for -- the first elected asian mayor of the city. >> reporter: he won after staying on top for 11 elimination rounds. the numbers still preliminary. about 33,000 votes by mail still need to be counted. second place candidate believes the remaining votes could change things significantly. >> he is in a position where he has -- has a strong lead and i think that's commonly what people do when they have a strong lead they declare victory. there are about 35,000 votes left to count and any candidate
1:52 am
in this position in their right mind would want to wait it out. that's what i will do. >> other candidates, did concede sending lee their promises to work with him. the congratulations letters are also coming in from lee's top supporters. >> senator feinstein, called her and we talked already and she -- jumping up and down and certainly congresswoman spear and certainly my good friend gavin newsom. >> the final vote count won't be ready until next week and only then can it be certified but it's believed it's unlikely lee will loose. the da race looks to be done with 100% of the precincts reporting and in just three rounds of elimination the incumbent is a head with a 32% cushion over the second place
